A search engine in its quiet period

Tonight I moderated a panel (Dutch) about search engine marketing. Where are those days when journalists asked me how it felt to be an Internet-entrepreneur, 'the new rockstars'? LOL. The debate was pretty tame, mostly because the Google representative was not allowed to participate at the last moment, due to the upcoming IPO. He was in the audience though - a decision he may have regretted as I kicked off the panel with the microphone in his face anyway.... he stuck to escape number 1: 'No comment.' Still, I just gave a radio interview for national public radio (Dutch) where I declared that Google is not evil. They feed their staff and guests too well to be evil.
